Ladder 15’s third floor special event space was full of young professionals anxious to hear from Tom Veit, President of the Philadelphia Union – Philadelphia’s newest sports team addition, debuting as an expansion team for Major League Soccer (MLS). Tom’s enthusiasm for the sport and the team was echoed by the audience, as he described how fans were the reason behind the team’s name selection, while the navy and gold colors of the uniform and logo reflect the patriotic history of Philadelphia…making Benjamin Franklin very proud of his “Sons” (and daughters!). With only 4 months and 6 days before kick-off of the team’s season, the new World-class waterfront stadium (located just over fifteen miles from Center City) in Chester, PA, will offer customizable seating area choices, 30 Luxury Suites and more: www.philadelphiaunion.com.

Tom reminded us that tickets are on sale now…and with season ticket packages starting at just $300, they are going fast. They can be purchased by visiting the website or calling 1.877.21.UNION…see you there!
